Fantastic welcome from a family run restaurant, a varied and excellent menu with typical canarian food - the steaks are heartily recommended. Nothing is too much trouble and the amazing views take in the 3 islands of La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro on a clear day as we experienced. Well worth the drive up the hill - a... More

We came here on recommendation. By the moment you get in, you get a very warm welcome by the owner of the place Genaro. He is very charming and helpful. Wine was great! Menu is not big but it's a certainty the food will be fresh. And it was!! We order rabbit and filet steak. The filet steak was so... More

Visited this wonderful restaurant after a recommendation and it is well worth the 30 minute drive up the mountain if just for the outstanding views. Made to feel very welcome by the owner and the steak was melt in the mouth and delicious. I tried the grilled rabbit as it was the 'speciality,' it was good but wouldn't order again... More

Absolutely top notch restaurant. Great Spanish dishes - make sure you are hungry if you order the rabbit (house speciality). The location is great, set in a very interesting old village.

We went based on the reviews on here and because it's close to Abama hotel. The staff were absolutely lovely and accommodating but the food was shockingly bad. Chicken was over cooked, chips were like cardboard, prawns had been frozen before being cooked. So disappointing as its a decent venue with enthusiastic staff just a shame they haven't got a...

Hired a car & wanted to go somewhere a bit different so picked this based on other trip advisor reviews. The menu is mainly meat with no fish option. My brother tried the rabbit and loved it! Ice cold beer & a lovely view. Staff were very friendly. It's definitely worth a trip.

A truly wonderful restaurant with excellent food and friendly service, the owner was so welcoming my three boys wanted to go back time and again. I have been to Tenerife many times and we stumbled across this restaurant accidentally, as the junctions have changed for the new road to Los Gigantes. The traditional sauces and food was top rate, the... More

This is a must visit if you have a car and are in Tenerife. I went to this Restaurant 3 times on my visit. It's up a mountain. It is a family run business and the service was fantastic. The owner was so welcoming and friendly, like he already knows you. I had the Sirloin steak which was very cheap... More

You can enjoy delicious Canarian food and a fine view for low prices. It is also possible to look into the kitchen and to see how the prepare your food. Very friendly service.
